Can't tell via EXIF either!

Long time ago I had the 18-200mm VR 1, until some point a couple of years ago, sold the original and upgraded to VR2.

But looking at the EXIF data, I can't tell which them apart! I had assumed for the longest time EXIF data would show a distinction, but Lightroom, View NX and Capture NX are reporting all of them as "VR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G"!

How is it possible? Is there a way to tell?
